Welcome 2010

It is a love-hate relationship.Even after all the ups and downs of our relationship, I still love PETRONAS for their messages in the national ad campaigns. I rarely read the regular print papers these days but my dad brought back a copy of TheStar last Friday and I happened to peruse it while having breakfast this morning. The PETRONAS ad caught my attention and I thought that there were many messages hidden between the many lines. Since I doubt that I am more eloquent than the ad, I’ll just reproduce it ad verbatim here:

Some people hate
Some people love

Some people are procrastinators
Some people act now

Some people love to point fingers
Some people love to extend their hands

Some people question every answer
Some people have an answer to every question

Some people hate to lose an argument
Some people love to win hearts

Some people want a change
Some people want to be the change

Some people are blind except to their own colour
Some people are colour blind

Some people are proud to belong to their race
Some people take pride in belonging to the human race

This New Year, it is not about who is perfect
and who is not. It is about sharing One Legacy,
One Destiny, 1Malaysia. Because to build a great
nation we must all learn to see the perfections
in the imperfections.

Happy New Year! May the blessings of the Triple Gem be with you always.
Live long and prosper.
